I’ve created some special products this year just for Valentine’s Day, but I’ll come back to that in a second. For every special occasion, I’m a big fan of giving the gift of time. Valentine’s Day is no exception. We get so busy in our lives that it’s easy just to go to dinner somewhere and call it a night. What takes more time is to plan something unique for your loved one – something that is specific to their interests and involves quality time together. I’ve put together a Gifts list of just such “experience” ideas. You can be a thoughtful partner this Valentine’s Day and every day - planning out special days or outings for the nature/animal/bird lover in your life. I’ll cover an example list of such activities in part 2 of this Valentine’s Day blog.
So back to the new products this Valentine’s Day….
I’ve created part 1 of this blog with a Valentine Gifts list of ideas for your nature, bird, or animal-loving Valentine. If you fancy a physical gift reflective of their interests, there are a variety of subjects across landscapes, animals, and birds. So while I have a pillow that features a zebra, you can also create a pillow of a garden, a particular bird, or many other animals.
Herein a list of gifts to get you started:
Idea #1 – A heart-shaped ceramic ornament they can hang anywhere and all year long
Idea #2 – A custom luggage tag or nature-themed neck tie to remind them of you wherever they go
Idea #3 – For the ladies, a beautiful scarf to enwrap her in a picture from nature.
Idea #4 – To give them a different kind of ‘warm’, a flask to carry their favorite libation
Idea #5 - To protect your beloved’s treasured electronics while taking along a bit of nature: a cellphone, ipad, laptop cover or sleeve
Idea #6 – To keep the treasured jewelry you’ve already gotten them: a wooden jewelry box
Idea #7 – To light up their world: a candle or lamp – hanging, lamp shade or table/desk lamp
Idea #8 – A custom wine-carrying box to surround their favorite bottle of wine
Idea #9 – A big floor pillow you both can use to snuggle up together and watch your favorite videos
Idea #10 – The “coziest” gift of all: a nice warm blanket for snuggling up together – this Valentine’s day and many more to come!
You can get Valentine cards and more ideas, such as shot glasses, BBQ aprons and teapots, in my Collections and Storefronts, below:The next step is to add to your physical gift an actual ticket or a customized handwritten or printed “representation” of an escape or nature activity/experience you’ll gift them with for Valentine’s Day. I’ll hook you up with those ideas in part 2 of this Valentine’s Day blog. Until then, remember:
"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul." - John Muir
Happy shopping and Happy Valentine's Day!
